Deadline: September 19, 2011
Global Teen Leaders (GTLs) will be carefully selected and invited each year to participate in the yearlong Three Dot Dash® initiative from nominations by non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and other qualified organizations that are members of the Three Dot Dash Coalition.
